Interest payment

At the end of the term

Income tax

10% on interest income

The deposit interest amount is calculated in the following manner:

Daily interest income
1,000,000.00 (deposited sum) x 9.25/100 (annual interest rate) / 365 (number of days in a year) = 253.42
Total interest income for 12-months
253.42 x 365days = 92,500
Net interest income for 12-months
92,500 - 9,250 (10% from total interest income is subject to income tax) = 83,250 (interest to be paid to the depositor upon maturity of the deposit)
Total deposit amount (initial deposit + after-tax interests) = AMD 1,083,250

Calculated amounts are rounded up to one hundredth. 

  ATTENTION!

Annual percentage yield
